The Hainan government said it will establish the South China Sea Satellite TV and Sansha Daily newspaper this year.
According to reports Monday, the South China Sea Satellite TV will meet the needs of residents and soldiers in Sansha, covering economic development and marine environment protection issues in the province.
The Sansha Daily will be jointly established by Sansha to report on the city's construction, economic development and environmental protection progress, chinaxwcb.com, a website under the China Press and Publishing Media Group, reported on Monday.
Established in July, Sansha is China’s youngest city and is seeing rapid development with a series of infrastructure projects, such as roads and garbage treatment stations.
A China Marine Surveillance detachment was stationed in the city on March 9 to carry out routine patrols in the waters off Sansha.
The city administers Xisha, Zhongsha and Nansha islands and surrouding waters in the South China Sea.
